dress & one-piece swimsuit review

Halter midi dress & Floral one-piece swimsuit.

Happy first day of Summer 2017! Here’s my follow-up review from this earlier blog post. I was looking for postpartum-friendly pieces for the summer.

I ordered a size Small and Medium for the halter dress. The Medium was too big on me in the chest and too long in length. I’m wearing the Small in the photo above. I really liked the idea of this boho halter dress but I’m returning it. The reason why is that you really can’t wear a bra underneath the dress because the back is very low. It’s a shame because this dress is such beachy boho perfection.

I ordered a size Medium and Large for the one-piece swimsuit. The Large was too big on me, especially in the torso area along the seams. The Medium fits me very well (worn above in the photo) and I’m keeping this swimsuit. I typically don’t do one-piece suits because they flatten my chest and don’t comfortably fit my longer torso. This suit does not flatten my chest because the top part is the same as my favorite string bikini triangle top. It’s padded, which is a huge plus. The torso feels very comfortable for me, so it’s a go for my longer torso.

The only potential issue is the “cheeky cut” of the bottom (their terminology, not mine). Fortunately, it’s not too revealing and I have a flat butt so it works for me.

I love the low back on this swimsuit and that I can get a custom fit with the halter strings at the top and at the lower back. I highly recommend this one-piece!

Let’s have a summer to remember, everyone! xx

latest purchase

Floral one-piece swimsuit & Halter midi dress.

I just ordered the swimsuit and halter dress last night. I’ve been eyeing this one-piece for a week or two and finally pulled the trigger. I’m hoping the cut on the butt isn’t too bare, but I ordered a size Medium and a size Large to get more coverage.

I love the boho goddess vibe to the halter midi dress. I think it is sexy yet casual. I hope this dress works out, I would love to add red to my summer wardrobe.

Have you scored any recent faves? TGIF! xx

Pleione bell sleeve top in pink smoke; Paige Denim Skyline ankle peg jeans; Cream tassel platform loafers; Tassel earrings in white; Halcyon Days enamel bracelet in pink & gold (gift, similar); Madewell ring (old, similar).

A quick post of my outfit today. I’m so glad I bought this top months ago, the blush pink really complements white denim. The tassel platform loafers are super comfortable and are stylish for days. I finished the look with my white tassel earrings.

You’re in luck if you like any of the items, I think everything I’ve linked are on major sale right now. I’d hurry on the top though, since sizes are limited.

Have a wonderful Thursday! xx

recent purchases

One-piece swimsuit; Embroidered jacket; Metallic rose gold oxfords; Cream tassel platform loafers.

I want to share my recent purchases with you. First, I bought the one-piece swimsuit for my postpartum body. It’s a fun and sexy suit but it covers the problem areas. I also like the molded cups since one-piece suits usually flatten my chest, but this suit provides a flattering shape. I ordered a size Small in this and it fits well. The ties are adjustable so it’s a custom fit.

Second is this snappy little jacket. I bought s size Small and it’s a great fit. This jacket elevates even a simple jeans and tee look. Promo code “MAINEVENT” provides an additional 25% off the sale price.

Third and fourth, look at these gorgeous shoes! They run true to size and are well made like every other Stuart Weitzman shoe. They complement both dressy to casual outfits, such as with a dress or with cutoff shorts.

Happy Thursday to you! xx
